On a recent spring day, the kids and I made this No Mess Easter Bunny Painting Craft. I love the way the colours mixed together and the fact that it was a mess free method of paining. It’s a super easy way to paint with toddlers and even older kids when you don’t want to manage the mess that usually comes with painting. The results are fantasic and its also alot of fun!

How to Set Up No Mess Easter Bunny Painting
Place your white or black card stock into a tray or on a some cardboard to protect your table. Invite your kid to pour our drops of paint on to the card stock. Pour the different colours all over in small amounts. But if large blob comes out that’s ok too!
Once your drops of paint are all over the page, place it inside a ziplock bag and seal it tight.
TIP: Open the bag as wide as possible and carefully slip it in so that the paint doesn’t smudge on the way in.
Invite your child to use their fingers to smush the paint all around covering the white or black areas.
Once they are cone, remove the page carefully and set it aside to dry.
Cut out an outline of a bunny by printing out the outline below. If your background is on white paper cut the bunny from black paper and visa versa if you used black for your background.
Glue down the bunny. Add a fluffy pom pom for the bunny’s tail and viola, you have a unique piece of Easter art worthy of any art wall!
